Pours a very dark brown. Scored this at the beer shoppe in Davis, couldn't really pull much out of the aroma at first, then pine became kind of the most discernable thing going on.

Taste, kinda bitter, dry, yet with an earthy fullness to the beer. Didn't impart any chocolate our mouthfeel of chocolate malt. Stayed pretty neutral allowing the pine to register throughout the beer.

For some reason the freshness bottled on notch got missed on this, and I was left to speculate how fresh it was based on the taste. It was decent, but I wonder if I got it sooner, the pine would have had that nice cold air bite to it that was missing on this occasion.

Tasted on 4/19/11

Aroma - What you would expect from a black IPA, piney and citrusy

Appearance - Dark black with a light brown head that has a little staying power

Taste - Sharp bitterness with a lingering bitter roast on the end. Not really my thing with the high IBUs and not a ton of other things going on.

Notes - Good carbonation and mouthfeel. The best beer out of a longshot six pack that was overall disappointing.
